FX Moroccan Moisture Miracle Argan Oil Review

By Mukul Richards

Hello Beauties!

It’s a dream, a goal for every Indian girl to own shiny, silky and long hair. This dream is fed by many shampoos, serums and other “magic” hair product commercials. Now, what this dreamy girl doesn’t realize is that these advertising people are very talented and possess the skill of animation and even if she does realize this, somewhere, some part of her brain and her heart will desperately want that product and hence that look.  I was one those dreamy girls who raved about having silky, shiny, golden locks. There was a time I bought any and every hair product to attain my goal, but then came a day when, while surfing on the internet, this 18-year-old girl opened up a link named Indian Makeup and Beauty (IMBB).  That was the day of enlightenment.  Since then, this girl has never bought any makeup product without reading reviews on IMBB.

Reading and researching through various IMBB pages, I encountered various hair serums. The last fantabulous hair serum that I used was Matrix Biolage.  It has the most hypnotic fragrance and how it transformed my hair was really wonderful. Anyhow, as they say “all good things come to an end,” my serum also came to an end. Now, this time I wanted to try something new. I read a lot about argan oil and decided to get it for myself. Browsing through the makeup aisle of Dorabjee’s, Pune, I stumbled upon this yellow colored bottle that read Moroccan Moisture – Argan oil.  As soon as I saw the words “argan oil,” I grabbed hold of the product and rushed to the cash counter, bought the product somewhere around April, have been using it ever since then and I guess now is the appropriate time to harvest the result.

Price:

Rs. 475 for 118 ml.

Product Description:

A tempting blend of pure cold pressed argan oil extract moisturizes and strengthens your hair while weightless silicones defrizz and add shine. Instantly smoothens and polishes, making hair soft, silky and shiny.

Packaging:

This product comes in a transparent bottle with a dome-shaped dispenser. The dispenser is like those dispensers that come with your Vim liquid bottles.  Squeezing the bottle dispenses just the right amount of product.

Texture and Fragrance:

The color of the serum is warm golden yellow. The serum is viscous unlike those super runny Matrix serums.  You have to work it in your palm and between fingers. It spreads wonderfully on wet hair and dry hair equally. About the fragrance, it’s somewhere between wood and honey, with slight notes of musk. The fragrance can be categorized more as “unisex” than as “feminine.” The fragrance lingers for a while and then as the hair dries up, the fragrance also disappears eventually.

My Experience with FX Moroccan Moisture Miracle Argan Oil:

This product is available in two forms i.e., Serum and Spray. For no reason, I selected to buy the serum. Next day, washed my hair and used this serum over towel-dried damp hair. As soon as I applied this onto my hair, I was greeted with a burst of its peculiar fragrance. It’s really viscous so one has to work it in between the palms and then apply onto the hair strands. After application, detangling was a piece of cake.  I didn’t style my hair that day and my hair, which is naturally wavy, actually turned straight.  Now, one has to be cautious about the quantity used. Since this has actual argan oil and hence using too much might make hair oily and limp, a coin-sized amount is enough for medium length hair.

The product adds shine and makes hair manageable. I style my hair a lot. I use straighteners and blow dryers. You can imagine the plight of my hair. Earlier I suffered a lot of hair breakage and split ends. Yes, breakage has reduced significantly, but I can’t comment on the split ends because I had a haircut around a month ago. The texture of my hair has improved significantly.  On the whole, this product is a great buy.

I have this and it has lasted me so long I’ve started to use it as a hair oil now! The fragrance is great and works well as a serum too. I picked it up for very cheap on Flipkart and yes, it was the argan oil that caught my eye. But now that I have the original argan oil (Moroccan oil, thanks to the Jean Claude Biguine salon), this one has taken a backseat.
